"Mrs. Aguda plays a vital role at Arlene Meraux Elementary as an enthusiastic, child-centered educator! She supports both ESL students and teachers alike. She provides strategies and tools to assist our ESL students in mastering skills needed to be successful. Additionally, she is a lifeline to our parents who are non-English speakers. She translates all of our letters that are sent home so everyone has access to our school communications. Mrs. Aguda makes phone calls to parents and sits in countless conferences where she serves as our translator. There is no task too big or too small for Mrs. Aguda! She is a positive force who is an advocate for all students, especially our ESL population. She serves as an ELA after-school tutor to our 5th grade students and our yearbook moderator. Mrs. Aguda is an asset to Arlene Meraux Elementary and we are lucky to call her one of our own!!💚💛"
